I have always used Wordfast Classic and I have started using SDL Studio 2009 recently.

I know it takes time to be proficient in another CAT tool, if you have used one CAT tool for several years.

I wonder if I can bypass SDL 2009, if I receive a sdlppx package. (The customer prefers to send me these packages instead of sending me the text file).

My idea is to:
- open the .sdlppx package with SDL Studio 2009,
- recover (import) the text (for example a .docx text),
- translate it in Wordfast
- export it back to SDL Studio 2009
- send the package to the customer.

Is this feasible? Has anyone done that?

Thanks in advance.
